Food Allergy 411 for Babysitters

Food allergies can be mysterious and confusing. And these days, it seems like everyone is allergic to something - especially small children and even babies...
39 Comments | Add Yours

According research near about 2% of U.S. adults and 4 to 8% of kids have food allergies, which cause about 150 deaths each year. The people with allergies vary in the severity of their reactions, some will get a mild rash or an itchy tongue if they eat something that contains the allergen and the others may stop breathing and lose the consciousness.  Marly Z.

ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAPA ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP ASAP please!!!help!!!!i have a splinter and i cant get it out!!!i tried to clip the skin away and it closed up too quick.and i tried to squeeze i out,i tried to pluck it out and none of it worked!!!!plese help me NOW!!!!

Ouch! You might have to get someone to help you, because splinters can be hard to see! Typically, if they are under the surface, you have to cut back the skin.  Try soaking your feet in hot water with some salt to get ride of bacteria, and loosen up your skin.  That way, it will probably be easier to get the splinter out... Good luck!

Thanks for the help! i will be babysitting my little neighbor and she has a peanut allergy so now i know what to do to keep safe from some food allergy mishaps!

I ALWAYS ask! Turns out one girl didn't have a FOOD allergy, but she was extremely allergic to bee stings, so we have to be extra careful about that! I'm really glad I asked.
